There is one NGO called Sea Shepherd based in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, Washington, in the United States of America. Sea Shepherd uses direct action tactics to protect marine life. They create a set of educational toys that look like regular toys, but they stuffed them with plastic items that animals tend to eat in the nature.
They have done one research that every year, 9 million tons of plastic thrown in the ocean and killing 100,000 marine animals and 1 million sea birds, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. That’s why they contacted different early childhood organizations to implement these toys in their educational program & educate kids about Ocean Pollution.
